Monitoring with Nagios

We're looking to set up monitoring for our Nimble CS500 via Nagios.  I've been following : Integrate Nagios and Nimble

which looks promising.  Things like the Nimble load, volume and array info should work ok, but I have a question on how I would properly monitor

disk info following that doc.:  The problem I'm having is doing something like :

sleep 39 && ssh adminuser@nimble disk --info 7 >/tmp/nimble/ssd1 will return something like:


Shelf location #: 0

Slot #: 8

HBA: 0

Port: 8

Serial: BTWL345200PV600TGN

Type: SSD

Disk size: 600.127 GB

Disk state: in use

Raid state: N/A

Percent resynchronized: N/A

Current resync speed: N/A

Average resync speed: N/A


Vendor: Nimble

Firmware version: 0355

Smart Data Attributes:


But we have a head shelf, and two expansion shelves.  The disk slot # repeats 1-16 for each expansion shelf.  How can I pull data from the command line for unique disks? (e.g in the example above we would be missing the two SSD drives we have in slot 8 in our expansion shelves).    I don't see a way from the commandline to say shelf #,  slot # when doing a check.  Any help is appreciated.
